There's one word - well, two actually - that springs to mind on hearing this: bloody hell. That is, of course, bloody hell in a good way, for this new single by Atlanta, Georgia quartet Big Jesus, 'SP', thunders through you like a dose of salts.
Big riffs and big scuzzy pop hooks are all in keeping with this first taster from their debut album 'Oneiric', out later this year via Mascot Records. Over the brutal onslaught of metal riffs, Spencer Ussery's surprisingly controlled pop punk vocals lay a dreamy shoegaze filter that melds in in a beautifully melodic way.
